Very Easy Interview

Store Associate Interview

Store Associate

I applied online and the process took 1 week - interviewed at Beauty Systems Group.

Interview Details – Had one interview for a new store that was opening. Interview was with DM and recently hired SM. DM asked most of the questions. SM was obviously not confident in role. Was asked questions from a piece of paper, nothing on the spot or personal. Asked a lot of scenario questions and how I have handled certain situations in the past.
Was told I was applying for Assistant Manager position, only to later find out there was no Assistant Manager position. I ended up being told that I could be hired as a sales associate and then after a month become an Assistant Manager. Later I found out that was not true.

Interview Question – There were no difficult questions.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – The negotiation phase was a lie. I was talked way down and told that after a month I would be given a promotion to management and a raise. This never happened. Was my own mistake though for taking the DM's word.

Store Associate Interview

Store Associate

I applied in-person and the process took a day - interviewed at Beauty Systems Group in March 2011.

Interview Details – Simple interview. Met with manager to discuss the job and qualifications. Easy questions were asked and manager was more than willing to hire me based on my knowledge, experience, and qualifications. Store operation hours are very reasonable and accommodating based upon my availability. Store manager and other associates are VERY friendly. The training process is rather lengthy but not bad at all. I've done worse. Overall, I like the job.

Interview Questions

  • What are some of the reasons why you liked/didn't like your past 3 jobs?   Answer Question
  • If you dropped off something at the dry cleaner's and you get it back and it's not what you want, what would you do?   View Answer

Negotiation Details – NOT. AT. ALL. Pay is rather disappointing for my skill level, experience, and expertise. I even called the higher-ups myself and still nothing. It's like talking to a brick wall. (Don't even bother trying to negotiate; they won't listen) The company also receives kick-backs for hiring those who have been unemployed for some time. It seems they are doing this to get more money for the company but are not willing to put it to use where it matters--the employee's paychecks.
